*** Torfaen bowls clubs welcome news of reprieve over maintaining greens ***

  June 12th, 2012 – Winter News Round-up

     The start of the 2012 bowls season at Pontnewydd has been tarnished with some terribly sad news, with the passing of club veteran, John Franklin. The man known as "Mr. Pontnewydd" for his dedication and passion for the club for so many years was a well-respected bowler and gentleman, throughout Monmouthshire.

He was Eastern Valley President in 2000 and also a member of Pontnewydd bowls club's committee for a number of years, where he held positions including secretary and club chairman. His name is immortalised numerous times on the club's honours boards in both internal and external competitions. He will truly be missed and our thoughts are with John's family and friends at this difficult time.

If ever the famous missing flag is found, we'll raise it half mast in your honour John!
John "Snowy" Franklin - 1933 - 2012
